Tickets are now on sale for the charity DJ battle follow up between Mayors Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram.
The pair will be taking to the decks on Friday 2 February 2024 on Camp and Furnace, as Greater Manchester and the Liverpool City Region go head-to-head in a good-natured music battle, all to raise funds to tackle homelessness and end the need for rough sleeping.
Ticketholders will be treated to the musical stylings of Craig Charles, Jamie Webster, Rebecca Ferguson, Peter Reid and Peter Hooton alongside LFC and England Rapper John Barnes for the home side – and band Blossoms, former Corrie actress Sally Lindsay, M-People’s Heather Small, and BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Nihal Arthanayake for Greater Manchester.
The charity event will be somewhat of a round three re-match for the pair, with their first clash taking place online during the pandemic and a follow-up in person event in Manchester last December, which raised over £25,000 and (incredibly) won ‘Leading Live Event of the Year’ at the 2023 This is Manchester Awards.
Proceeds from the night will be distributed between the Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester charities, with all funds supporting initiatives to tackle homelessness and end the need for rough sleeping. In the Liverpool City Region, proceeds will be directed to homeless charities across the area through Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside. In Greater Manchester, the money will support A Bed Every Night, Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity’s flagship ongoing programme to provide emergency wrap-around support to those rough sleeping, offering guaranteed food and shelter.
